Milwaukee Man Sentenced in Armed Robbery Case

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced that on November 14, 2013, Milwaukee resident Kenyatta A. Clincy was sentenced on the charge of Robbery While Armed with an article that the victim reasonably believes is a dangerous weapon, a Class C Felony.  A jury found Clincy guilty as charged on October 3, 2013.  At the November 14, 2013, sentencing hearing, Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Glenn H. Yamahiro considered Clincy’s prior record of criminal offenses, Clincy’s various risk factors, and the severity of the offense and ordered Clincy to serve a sentence of 10 years of initial confinement and five years of extended supervision.


On the night of March 25, 2013, Clincy robbed an Assistant District Attorney in front of her home with a shiny metal object that the victim believed was a gun.  Clincy escaped the scene by jumping into a getaway car driven by a co-defendant.  Fewer than three hours later, Clincy was found speeding at more than double the speed limit in the same car that was used in the robbery, wearing the same clothing that he wore during the robbery, and in possession of a shiny metal implement positioned at his feet directly beneath the steering wheel.  The shiny metal implement was a lug wrench that has a shape similar to that of a gun.


Chapter 950 victim/witness services are being provided by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Office of Crime Victim Services.  This matter was investigated by the City of Milwaukee Police Department and the Milwaukee HIDTA.  This case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Eric D. Défort.
